Paul makes very good solid points.   One thing that I would add, having
experience in setting up such an organization, is to avoid setting firm
hard-line restrictions against any participation.  I would recommend a
slight modification to Paul's second point.  A current moderator, judged
to be in good standing by his peers, may run unopposed for a vacant, or
to-be vacant, position.  If someone doesn't want that person to be in an
elected position all they have to do is step up to the plate.

It is only in NANOG's interest to have interested people serve.
